Here’s some news about Brandon Rush of the Golden State Warriors. Ken Berger of CBS Sports has the report. How u?
Brandon Rush injured his left knee in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies on November 2nd, which was the Warriors’ second game of the season. Rush went up for a dunk in the first quarter when he was fouled from behind by Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph. He landed awkwardly on his left foot and his knee bent in a way it probably shouldn’t have. Rush has had, unfortunately, a history with knee injuries. He also tore his ACL on his right knee a few years ago.
Rush was drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 2008 with the 13th overall pick after three years at Kansas. He was traded to Golden State after the 2010-11 season for big man Lou Amundson. Rush would have his best scoring season off the bench as he averaged 9.8 points in the 2011-12 season. He would also average 3.9 rebounds and shoot a career-high 45.2 percent from behind the arc. Rush is known for his three-point shooting and perimeter defense. For his career, he averages 9.1 points and 3.6 rebounds per contest.
Brandon Rush also has two older brothers that played pro basketball. JaRon Rush was more known for his collegiate career as he played for the UCLA Bruins. Kareem Rush played a few years in the NBA, last playing for the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2009-10 season. Kareem was probably most known for his stint with the Los Angeles Lakers from 2002-04 and for the six three-pointers he made against Minnesota in the clinching game of the 2004 Western Conference Finals. Kareem Rush has also started a music career on the side.
Brandon Rush signed a two-year extension before this season for about $8 million. Next season is a player option for him.
Get well soon, Brandon.
